And the winner is....

I've FINALLY chosen a winner for my 'win free wedding photography' competition. It's taken me so long to choose because there were so many great entries (and a big shout out to everyone who entered!). In the end I choose a couple who I felt a bit of a connection with, and could totally understand where they were coming from. And they are .... Jessica Baer and Michael Reid

This was part of Jess' entry ...

I was just reading your blog and i read that your offering free wedding photography to a couple who cant afford it... well your reading an email from one. Me and my fiance have been looking around for ages (like 4 months) trying to find a photographer who we can afford - we have looked at people from around Shepparton, Bendigo, Echuca, Melbourne and even in Coffs Harbour but so far we cant find one in our price range who is half decent or good. There are plenty of good photographers around, but we just cant afford them.

I surprised Jess and Michael with the news over coffee. They were extremely happy to learn they had won the competition. I was just happy that I could be of help.

And they're already being so sweet about it all. Check out the email Jess wrote to me...

Hey Meaghan.
soo much! We definitely weren't expecting it at all!
It made our day completely!
Cant wait to have you photograph our wedding :D

That email in itself is the reason I ran the competition. To make a couples wedding day just that touch more special.

I'll make sure I post lots of shots from their wedding so you can all have a look. They're having 14 in the bridal party, so I'm going to have my work cut out for me. I'm looking forward to it!
